The telescope from 'The Inner Light' is up for auction. Estimated wirth $3,000 to $5,000. Starting bid, only $1,500.

Jean-Luc Picard/Kamin’s (Patrick Stewart) custom-made telescope on a swivel base from Gene Roddenberry’s sci-fi series Star Trek: The Next Generation. The imposing wooden set piece is skillfully hand-painted by prop fabricator Paul Pearson to replicate antique brass complete with age distressing and oxidation. Bronze-like barn doors used to shape the beam and a convex plastic lens within provide added realism. The telescope was stored in a light, climate and humidity-controlled fine art warehouse. As a result, it is in excellent condition overall. In the episode ‘The Inner Light’ (525), Picard inhabits the body of the extraterrestrial Kamin after being struck with a mysterious energy beam. Kamin uses the telescope to search the night sky for the USS Enterprise.

An 8x10" print of this image is included with the accompanying lot.

The inner light huh? That episode was so deep in emotional torment, especially if you watch it again and know the ending :-( Nice find through! Any chance you can get your hands on the prop-flute he is left with? As it was the only thing left of that race, it’s a nostalgic piece of imagery that is shown in a later episode. Anyone who’s seen how Picard gets it typically gets the “awwww” feeling from seeing it again.
